10 Most Unlikely Things That Were Influenced by J.R.R. Tolkien
Amanda Yesilbas and Charlie Jane Anders
The author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings casts a massive, sweeping shadow over fantasy literature and entertainment. But J.R.R. Tolkien's influence spreads much further than that. Everywhere you look, you can see Tolkien's legacy: in science, in art, in language.
Did I read somewhere that it's going to be a three part movie? How long will I have to wait to see all three chapters?
I'm looking forward the The Hobbit movie because too excited for watching this movie...Please tell me the release date???
Okay, the Fandango system gave me a minor heart attack because it took so long to put up the showtimes but I did manage to get the new HFR 3D tickets. Something that will take advantage of the 48 FPM tech that Peter Jackson used to shoot the trilogy.
I am somewhat dreading seeing the film in the HFR format. I have skimmed over a few 'HFR makes certain viewers ill' headlines' and have refused to go farther then that because I'm trying to remain in potential denial. I know I can get headaches and nausea while watching extended handy cam scenes and movies. I'm hoping that will not be the case for this movie.
Watching the opening 10 plus minutes of Saving Private Ryan had given me one of the worst headaches of my life. It's rare but it has happened to me about a half a dozen times while watching movies in the movie theater. Then again, I'm fine watching 3D movies and I wear eye glasses. Most people effected by 3D movies in the cinema are eye glass wearers so this alleged HFR ailment might pass me over. (((fingers are crossed)))
